The internet has transformed the way information is shared and consumed, but it has also created problems that did not exist before. What are the most serious problems associated with the internet and what solutions can you suggest?

The enormous growth in the use of the internet over the
last
decade has led to radical changes to the way that people consume and share information.
Although
serious problems have arisen
as a result
of
this
, there are solutions. One of the
first
problems of the internet is the ease with which children can access potentially dangerous sites.
For example
, pornography sites are easily accessible to them because they can register with a site and claim to be an adult. There is no doubt that
this
affects their thoughts and development, which is a negative impact for the children and for society. Another major problem is the growth of online fraud and hacking. These days, there are constant news stories about government and company websites that have been hacked, resulting in sensitive information falling into the hands of criminals. It is important that action is taken to combat these problems. Governments should ensure that adequate legislation and controls are in place that will prevent young people from accessing dangerous sites,
such
as requiring more than simply confirming that you are an adult to view a site. Parents
also
have a part to play. They need to closely monitor the activities of their children and restrict their access to certain sites, which can now be done through various computer programs. Companies must
also
improve their
onsite
taking place or located at the site
on-site
IT security systems to make fraud and hacking much more difficult by undertaking thorough reviews of their current systems for weaknesses. To conclude, the internet is an amazing technological innovation that has transformed people’s lives, but not without negative impacts.
However
, with the right action by individuals, governments and businesses, it can be made a safe place for everyone.
